    Resume Writers & Career Coaches: Use Holiday Downtime for a Winning New Year

    10 Ways to Leverage Holiday Downtime for New Year Business Success - Cover

    Holiday downtime can be the entrepreneur’s gift of rest and rejuvenation, but it can also be a great opportunity to set yourself up for your most winning new year.

    Finding balance is what’s key!

    In yesterday’s livestream show I rounded up our top ten (10) strategies you can pick from to make success happen.

    Whether you take some or all of these actions now, or you use them to guide you at the start of the New Year, these are sure-fire strategies to move your business powerfully forward.

    They include:

    1. Take stock of your wins and learning lessons from the past year.
    2. Ensure your brand is consistent on all platforms.
    3. Leverage your prospect lists or get one started.
    4. Reach out to former clients.
    5. Follow up with prospects who had to think about it.
    6. Review your prices, packages, and consultation strategy.
    7. Create a plan for enhancing visibility and engagement.
    8. Complete that project, product, or program that never gets finished.
    9. Review and update your client agreement.
    10. Connect with your colleagues.
